a color combination, I finally decided on Wild Wasabi, Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo and More Mustard, all set against White Naturals.
The Keepsake Ornament stamp set called to me once again, and I decided to use two of the smaller, less showy ornaments. My "bling" is kept to a minimum: simply one Basic Rhinestone.
A little bit of the gold cord that Stampin' Up! retired a few years ago (so sad) added a bit more sparkle. Elegance arrived in the heat embossed tree branch, done with Wild Wasabi Embossing Powder.
The banner on the bottom of the card is from Apothecary Art. I simply embossed it with Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder. I then added the sentiment from the Curly Cute set, once again embossing it with Cherry Cobbler. I cut out the scrolled banner and attached it to a piece of Wild Wasabi card stock to balance the tree branch at the top.
To give the ornaments a bit more dimension, I popped them up against the background with Stampin' Dimensionals.
This is the sketch my card was based upon:
